There are several skin rejuvenation services designed to address imperfections such as wrinkles, sun damage, acne and more. While a good amount of treatments focus on the outermost layer of skin, there are others that go a bit further.
Fraxel Dual is a resurfacing treatment that targets the deepest layers of skin to provide patients with a complete makeover—resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin!
What Is Fraxel Dual?
Fraxel Dual resurfacing targets imperfections with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. By stimulating the growth of new skin cells and collagen, this treatment renews your skin from the inside out!
The benefits of Fraxel Dual treatments include smoother skin and an improvement of skin tone and texture—as well as the correction of acne scars, surgical scars, fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots. This procedure is FDA-cleared for wrinkles around the eyes, acne scars, surgical scars, age spots, melasma, precancerous lesions and skin resurfacing.
What Can I Expect from Skin Resurfacing?
During a Fraxel Dual treatment, you may feel a warm sensation on your skin. Discomfort will be minimized with topical anesthesia, as well as the application of cold air on the treatment area.
After your session, your skin may be pink or red, swollen and feel as if it’s been sunburned. Other side effects may include itching, peeling, flaking or dry skin—and just like a sunburn, these are normal results which typically fade within a few days. You’ll want to avoid sun exposure after your session, and follow any other post-procedure suggestions provided by your nurse or skin care expert, in order to avoid infections or skin damage.
Like most skin rejuvenation treatments, more than one session may be required in order to achieve desired results. The ideal regimen is three to five sessions with two to four weeks in-between each treatment. This may vary depending on your skin type and the conditions you would like to address.
